Hello, Happy Friday! I can’t believe how long I have been running this meal planning linky for now. 130 weeks? Wow! This week has been a great one, lots got done around our home and we’ve had scaffolders, and roofers and all sorts here!
This week I’m going back to some meal planning of my own. We’re having a break from Hello Fresh, because I have some Simply Cook kits that need using up! You can get paid *£20 off Hello Fresh and a *FREE Simply Cook box.
I do love how convenient Hello Fresh is but I don’t want the kits I have to expire and go to waste, so I’m going to visit Lidl and do a big shop for all of the recipes I have planned.
Meal planning helps us to have low food waste which is really important to me. I feel really sad if we have to throw something in the bin, thinking of both the environmental impact and the fact that other people struggle to afford food.
I am always trying to take steps to make sure we are avoiding overspending on groceries.
Planning our meals is a great way for us to save money, stay organised and eat delicious, tasty meals. I really enjoy cooking, and love making something new at least weekly.
At the moment our meal times are one of the highlights of another day staying home together, and so I want to make sure we are enjoying nice food together.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #130
For the week ahead I’ve loosely planned breakfasts and lunches, to ensure that we have enough items in, and then we are fortunate enough to have a Hello Fresh box coming for most of our dinners which I am very grateful for.
The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #130 are:
Simply Cook: Chicken & mushroom risotto
Simply Cook: Jerk chicken with rice and beans
Simply Cook: Mexican beef quesadillas
Simply Cook: Black bean chicken with rice
Simply Cook: Sausage & fennel pasta
Simply Cook: Mexican pork one-pot with rice
Takeaway night or maybe a slow cooker beef keema curry.
That’s it! A nice straight forward week for us. I’m looking forward to not having to plan our meals too much and everything being measured out for me.
